Purolator announced it expects to invest approximately $1 billion to electrify its Canadian network over the next seven years. This includes a plan to purchase more than 3,500 fully electric last-mile delivery vehicles and the electrification of more than 60 terminals across Canada.

This commitment also marks the largest network investment in Purolator’s 63-year history, with more than $100 million to be invested in 2023 alone.

“Purolator was the first Canadian courier to launch fully electric curbside-delivery trucks nationally. Their ambition is to be the greenest courier company in Canada, and with this investment, Purolator will take yet another important step toward a more sustainable future and healthier planet,” said John Ferguson, President and CEO, Purolator. “They’ve set ambitious goals for themselves and are working with their customers and partners every day to reduce their carbon footprint and protect their environment.”
